The K-12 computer science framework provides a unifying vision to guide computer science from a subject for the fortunate few to an opportunity for all. The major themes within this framework focus on:
We designed the SCRIPT to facilitate a conversation among district personnel, school leaders, teachers, and partners. The SCRIPT offers a set of rubrics that help district teams collaborate on a vision of a rigorous, inclusive and sustainable computer science discipline in K-12. The SCRIPT challenges the assumption that CSforALL is achieved through teacher PD alone. It builds from a shared vision for CS education and brings multiple stakeholders to the table. It helps district teams identify rigorous pathways that connect multiple teachers across grades and schools. It encourages districts to support teachers not only in their first efforts to learn CS content, but also in their long-term efforts to develop rich pedagogy and reach for mastery over time. The SCRIPT empowers districts to engage their leadership in meaningful, concrete ways to support the efforts of teachers in the classroom.
This K-12 Administrator Toolbox is a working document that is being created through collaborative efforts between Marquette University's PUMP-CS team, The MKE Tech Hub, and our WI CSforALL SCRIPT facilitators.
